Gifts For Your Sister That She Can Use On Her Wedding Day
If you are having a hard time thinking of the perfect gift to give your sister for her big day, consider giving her something that she can use or wear on her wedding day. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
A Personalized Wedding Dress Hanger
A personalized wedding dress hanger is a wonderful gift to give your sister for her wedding day. It is something that she will absolutely love. Your sister will be reminded of this beautiful gift every time she looks through her wedding album and sees the gorgeous photos of her wedding dress hanging up.
Our favorite wedding dress hanger
We love this personalized wedding dress hanger from TyuWeddingGifts on Etsy.
These are much more sturdy than the typical wire name hangers. Those are awesome, but these custom dress hangers are a step up in quality in our opinion.
Here are a few more wedding dress hanger options to choose from:
Bridal robe for the getting ready room (personalized with your sister’s name)
If your sister has not already purchased robes for herself and her bridesmaids, a personalized bridal robe would make a great gift for her special day. These are perfect to wear the morning of the wedding while the bride is getting her hair and makeup done.
These lace robes are made and sold by ModParty on Etsy.
Jean jacket personalized with the bride’s name (for the denim lovers!)
Custom denim jackets are so fun to wear for parts of the reception. Definitely have your photographer get some photos of you once you put it on. Plus you can rock this look anywhere else you go!
These personalized jean jackets have amazing reviews! They do a run a bit small so we recommend sizing up 1-2 sizes for a more relaxed fit (the seller also recommends this on their Etsy page).
Made and sold by ShopAtBash on Etsy. Definitely check out their shop for even more items.
Bride joggers and slippers
Customize and personalize these super comfortable joggers. Plus grab a cute pair of slippers to complete the ensemble.
Made and sold by ModParty on Etsy.
This sweatshirt is really comfortable and would go great by itself or paired with the jogger above.

If you are looking for a top-notch handmade gift for your sister that costs less than $50, you should definitely check these out.
These high-quality cutting boards are made and sold by EnchantingPatina on Etsy.
Wedding dress sketch (one of a kind piece of art)
These one-of-a-kind original sketches are such a thoughtful gift to give your sister on her wedding day. There are so many options to choose from. You can have just the dress drawn, or you can add the following:
- Both sides of the dress
- The groom’s suit
- A 2nd wedding dress if there are two brides
- The veil
- The wedding party dresses
- And more!
If you are asking yourself, “how can I surprise my sister on her wedding day?”, this is the perfect gift for you. It’s also a great option if you are looking for a wedding gift idea that is under $100.

Custom made vow wall art
Have your sister’s vows printed on these gorgeous wood signs (plus the couple’s name and wedding date). This is such an amazing wedding gift to give your sister and her new husband (or wife). The reviews for these signs have steller reviews from so many happy customers.

Gift Ideas For Sister’s Wedding (Under $20)

A pre-wedding trip for just the two of you
If you or your sister are the types who prefer experiences over things, a long weekend trip to a special location might be the perfect idea for you.
Spending a long weekend with your sister (aka your best friend) eating good food, having a few drinks, and simply enjoying your relationship would be an amazing gift. And it would be an experience that neither of you would ever forget.
A few locations ideas to get you started:
- A weekend trip to the beach
- Las Vegas
- New Orleans
- Lake Tahoe
- Disneyland or Disneyworld
- New York
- San Francisco
- Yosemite National Park
- Napa/Sonoma (wine country)
Personalized photo album or memory book
We love the idea of putting together a book or photo album to give the bride on the morning of her wedding (you can also give this to her at the bachelorette party, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner).
1. You can make this book/album from just you and include memories/photos of you and your sister. Make sure to include a really nice letter inside with photos of all of your favorite moments together.
2. Another option is to have all of the bridesmaids make copies of their favorite photos with the bride-to-be. Then each girl writes a letter to the bride. You put the entire thing together and give it to the bride as a group.
3. A third option would be if the bride has multiple siblings. You could make the book or album from all of the siblings. Each brother or sister would write a letter to be included. Then you would gather all of your favorite photos.
We guarantee that your sister is going to love any one of these options. This is something she will look at forever.
A day at the spa for you and your sister
A great gift idea for your sister would be to treat her to a day at the spa.
You can do this at almost anytime but a great time would be just before the wedding (like 2-3 days before). Your sister will most likely be a little stressed since the big day is getting close. A spa day would be something that she could really use. Plus it will be an amazing memory for the two of you.
A custom wedding planning journey video
This gift idea will definitely take some planning and commitment from you, but the end result would be a gift that your sister will cherish forever!
Your sister is going to be doing so much wedding planning over the next 6-18 months (depending on how long her engagement is), and she is going to forget so many of those memories and moments (simply because there are so many of them).
How amazing would it be to take small little videos on your phone of as many of these moments as you can? Nothing fancy. Nothing that requires fancy cameras. Just your phone and a little planning.
Then after the wedding day, you put together a video (using free software like iMovie or VideoPad) of your sister’s entire wedding planning journey.
The finished video will be 5-10 minutes long (set to music, plus it will include audio of the moments)
Some of the key moments to get a few clips of are:
- Your sister trying on her dress
- Any bridal/wedding shows you attend with your sister
- Bridal shower
- Bachelorette party
- Any little planning sessions that you are there for
- Rehearsal dinner
- Moments from the wedding day (getting ready, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, etc.)
In our opinion, this would be the best gift to give your sister….like ever! You could still buy her a gift, but there is nothing that would mean more to her than having these little moments documents and put together.
We can put together an entire tutorial if interested. Send us a DM on Instagram. If we get a handful of people wanting a detailed tutorial, we will make a video and post it on our blog and Instagram. Here is our Instagram: PA Unveiled
